Thursday the 22nd, Thanksgiving Day. 1-5pm, 14466 Liberty Church St., SE,  in Minerva, Ohio, 44657 (phone number[masked]): Please read the following message from Cherie and Glenn:

Hello Vegan Thanksgiving Day Enthusiasts!

My husband Glenn and I are excited once again to host a Vegan, Non-violent, cruelty free Thanksgiving potluck on the actual day of Thanksgiving - November the 22nd, a Thursday.  We have plenty of space and a large kitchen.

We have a mini farm sanctuary for those who would like to come talk with the goats and chickens and cats and dog.

I will provide the dinner ware.  The time is scheduled for 1-5 PM, allowing everyone to get home before it gets too dark.  We are  not centrally located.  We are outside of Minerva about 70 miles from Cleveland. We are located 2 miles west of Minerva in the hills. We are an option for those with a trail blazing spirit.  Car pooling may be a great option!

Our little farm sanctuary is a story in itself.  We used to think that dairy (raw dairy) was good for you and the only way to have raw is to either grow your own or have a herd share (we did both).  So we have these wonderful goats that we used to milk.  And our place came with chicken's whose eggs we used to eat.  Anyway, over our evolution we have come to see that dairy and eggs are not good for you or for them.  So now they are our "pets that we don't milk" (we used to call them our "pets that we milk") and we are committed to caring for them and providing for them as long as they live.  We have rescued goats over the years but we are not actively planning on adding to the herd and there is no breeding going on.  Some of them are quite old for domestic goats.  We love having them all - they are great friends.

There are woods here for hiking.  I would recommend bringing hiking boots and blaze orange something to wear - unfortunately it is that time of year again.

We are really looking forward to seeing all our friends from last year and hopefully add some new friends this year.  Plant strong and pain free. With your RSVP, please indicate what entree, desert, appetizer, etc., you plan on bringing.

Thanks, Cherie and Glenn

    Hi you all. Those of you who got some of Nicolas' great cabbage and are wondering what to do. I made a Colcannon last night that was fantastic. Just shred and chop about half a head of cabbage, dice 4 peeled yukon gold potatoes, and one onion and put them in boiling water until tender, add about a cup of broccoli florets (diced) to the water and cook until they are bright green. Drain the water and add 3/4 cup nutritional yeast, dairy free milk - about 3/4 cup or to your liking, chipotle flakes (best) or powder to taste, pepper, and minced garlic and salt if you like. Mash all together with a potato masher and eat. Yummy!!

    Thank you all for coming down to our place. We had a great time. Have you ever had the experience of having a really great event and you try to do it again and the second time it does not have the same magic? Well I was thinking our second Thanksgiving gathering might be like that because last year was so wonderful but Glenn and I both agree this year was just as magic as last year. We are still glowing from all the love you brought to our home. Thank you, thank you.

Thank you Cherie and Glenn and for all of those who attended. Please put you name on the photos or the captions. Sorry that I didn't get Kevin or Nicholas in the pictures!!!

    Hi all. Hope you have a save journey. Just a reminder when you get here be very careful in our driveway. The cats are very trusting of us and our automobiles in the driveway. Go slowly! Thanks.
